Yesterday I completely threw away my diet plan to partake in the joy of terribly wonderful food at the Indiana State Fair, and along the way I took a few Oppo-relevant pics as well.
The parade is always fun, although this particular iteration was rendered less entertaining by the missing CJ-2A. There’s a gorgeous one that sometimes heads the lineup, and since this is a Jeep blog (right?) I’ll include a photo of it from a few years ago.
This International Harvester relic powers...maybe kettle corn? I forgot to check what was at the end of the belt.
The theme of this year’s fair is everyday heroes, so fire engines were well-represented.
For anyone who cares to pass judgment on the appropriateness of the food pics below relative to my diet, the only thing I bought that I consumed entirely was the peach cider slush, which is my first stop every year and no diet could ever keep me away from. Such wonderful sweetness. Everything else I abandoned partway through so I could continue my quest for sugar.
For the morbidly curious, here’s a list of some of the other wonderful goodies. Now that I’ve stumbled upon that page I have to go back to find the deep-fried chocolate cookie ice cream sandwich, and this time I’ll try the trifecta hero dreamsicle that I skipped yesterday.
There was also a steak sandwich, but that photo is particularly uninteresting. Good sandwich though.
